Class Description:

Hand lettering and brush letting give a personalized look and feel to cards, place settings, and advertisements. In this class, we will learn the basics of hand lettering using micron pens. As we gain comfort with hand lettering, we will begin to practice using our watercolors to translate these skills to brush lettering. We will learn to blend colors for a richer effect as we hand letter. At the end of class, you will leave with both hand lettered and brush lettered labels for gifts.

Class Description:

Watercolor requires that we learn to work with our creative flow, literally and metaphorically. It is the perfect opportunity to let go of expected outcomes and be present with the process of creation. In this class, we’ll bravely explore the tools and processes that make working with watercolors a joyful experiment. We will take some quiet moments journaling to set some intentions about our creative process. Each participant will create a watercolor mandala that reflects their personal intentions, values, and experiences. We’ll share our insights into the creative process at the end of our class.

Come and share the creative process with a community of creative adventurers!
